Product Overview

Welcome to the enchanted world of Narnia, a land of great danger and noble adventure. The BBC and Home Vision Entertainment are proud to present this epic tale of good vs. evil by legendary author C.S. Lewis in a DVD entertaining for the whole family.

Prince Caspian calls Lucy, Edmund, Peter and Susan back to the magical land of Narnia in his most harrowing time of need. Led by Aslan, the Great Lion, the children help young Caspian defeat corrupt King Miraz in a spectacular battle, restoring Narnia to its full glory. Years later, Lucy and Edmund are sent back to Narnia, along with their cousin Eustace, to assist Caspian on a voyage. Along their journey the children battle dragons and sea serpents and sail across a golden lake to reach the edge of the world.

Review The BBC may have a reputation for quality programming today, but this reputation rests on some high-quality, big budget shows such as Planet Earth, the new Doctor Who and the like. In its time the BBC could churn out dreadful television just as well as any other state-run public broadcaster...The biggest problem with these Narnia adaptations is, you guessed it: a low, low budget. The costumes, special effects and sets are no better than your local community theatre production. (No seriously.) Especially the cheesy costumes of the animal characters are horrendous and will have you rolling your eyes...But it's a kid show aimed at children -- surely they won't mind? Wrong again. My five-year-old was bored out of her skull in no time and soon asked whether we can watch something else. It can be argued that she is a bit young for the show, but it is doubtful whether today's jaded kids raised on the likes of Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings movies will settle for something that looks like a primary school production...Boding ill for the big screen movie version of Prince Caspian is the fact that it is a rather thin story and for this series they could only stretch the story out over two episodes of about 20 minutes each. It'll take a lot of plot padding to turn Prince Caspian into a full-length Hollywood feature film!...So save your money. If you must, rather spend them on buying Lewis' books (although we never counted ourselves as fans) or, if you're really in the mood for some fantasy, maybe the rest of Philip Pullman's Golden Compass books to see what happens next now that any Golden Compass sequels are about as likely as Paris Hilton entering a nunnery...

Debi Lee Mandel, Digitally Obsessed! A great high seas adventure for the children, complete with sea monsters, sorcery and a beautiful princess for Caspian to win.
The Science Fiction, Horror and Fantasy Film Review ...a better, tighter production than [the BBC's] The Lion, the Witch, & the Wardrobe...
